Kinda of a really obvious question :oops: but... Approx how many Km's should one consider changing their timing chain on a 4.0L DOHC VCT l6?? :roll:

AFAIK there is no routine timetable for changing a chain, unlike a belt.
However chains do stretch over time so most people change them if they start making any noise.
